Restaurant Ban Repeal Passes House

We are just the Governor's signature away from celebrating a victory 14 years in the making. Today, the House of Delegates approved by a wide margin Senator Hanger's SB334. The bill repeals the ban on carrying concealed in restaurants that serve alcohol like Applebees and Olive Garden.

Also passing today was SB408, Senator Vogels bill that allows non-concealed handgun permit (CHP) holders to store their firearm in a locked container in an automobile or boat.

Also passing today was SB 3, Senator Smith's bill allowing for renewal of CHPs by mail.

Governor McDonnell is expected to sign all three, which could occur prior to the end of the General Assembly session. The bills will all become effective on July 1.
